Vintage baby-friendly café

 One of the best cafés in Aarhus will have to be Hos Sofies Forældre {At Sofie's Parents'} where especially babies and their parents are more than welcome. Some cafés don't like to have the mothers breastfeeding their infants (which I find weird since, well, its soooo natural) but here theres space and smiles for that. Lots of toys, baby equipment, baby food and the lot..

Well, on to the menu. They have about 60 different teas and coffees, and lots of cakes and sandwiches. You can buy bags of tea and coffee to go and this is where I buy my Leone pastilles. nom nom nom...
 This is their 'moderate breakfast' plate; a roll with butter, cheese and toppings, fresh fruit, a danish or a croissant, a small pot of tea or coffee, and juice. And the very best thing about this place is the old china.. You feel like a baroness from the Edwardian era while sipping your vanilla-lime tea (they have lots of funny and tasteful mixes of tea) and munching on a brownie.
As you can see, the decor is kept in the old style with various groups of vintage chairs and tables.

This place is highly recommendable, however, if you DO NOT like children or constantly hear your biological clock ticking, then you should probably go somewhere else because there's usually a lot of babies and toddlers here (pure coincidence that the photo doesn't show any!) and they crawl around and shriek and laugh and cry and whatever children do..
The staff is so sweet and patient, and always glad to help finding the right tea for you.

In addition, you can purchase baby clothes, vintage china, sweets, and old fashioned toys here as well.

So if you one day visit and spot someone lounging in one of the comfy chairs reading - then its probably me!

That post made me smile: breastfeeding is not a problem (and it shouldn't be), in fact I would positively encourage it as it keeps the child quiet ;-) I'm allowed to say that since I'm a mum, hahaha! xo
